How to make Danish Puff Pastry:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees C.
  • Take a cup of flour into a bowl, cut in 1/2 cup butter, sprinkle with 2 tablespoon of water, and mix with a fork.
  • Form dough into a ball and divide in half. Pat into two, approximately 12 x 3 inch strips.
  • Arrange crust strips approximately 3 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • In a medium sauce pan, melt 1/2 cup butter into 1 cup water and bring to a boil.
  • Remove from heat and add almond extract. Beat in 1 cup flour, stirring quickly to prevent lumping.
  • When mixture is smooth, add one egg at a time, beating well after each addition until smooth.
  • Divide puff mixture in half and spread evenly over both strips of crust.
  • Bake for about 1 hour at 350 degrees. Puff has a affinity to shrink while cooling, leaving a custard like portion in the center.
  • Combine 2 tablespoon of butter with 1 cup powdered sugar and enough cream or milk to reach desired consistency.
  • Glaze while slightly warm and sprinkle with almonds or pistachios.
